Title: ●Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Removal of the Gypsum Wild-Buckwheat From the Federal List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants 

This is a proposed rule to remove the Eriogonum gypsophilum (Gypsum wild-buckwheat) from the Federal List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants, due to recovery, and a 12-month finding on a petition to delist the Eriogonum gypsophilum. This species is a regionally endemic, perennial plant species in New Mexico. It occupies gypsum soils and gypsum outcrops of the Permian-age Castile Formation. These habitats are dry and nearly barren, except for common species of gypsophilic plants and gypsum wild-buckwheat.
